You can also get a list of shortcuts for an application by using its help option (usually by pressing F1 or going to the Help menu) and browsing the contents or searching for "keyboard", "shortcut" or "accessibility".

For more information see Freedom Scientific's JAWS product page. They have also produced a guide called Surf's up! Surfing the Internet with JAWS and MAGic which helps users new to the software to get online.
